Yup, if it was working you should've received an emailed notification of my reply.

Yes, the notify button when reading or updating a topic (thread). For instance, this topic. I've clicked the Notify button but have not received any emails.

It's handy when wanting to follow a thread.

Come to think of it I used to get notifications automatically, but haven’t for awhile.  Since you bring it up, I now note a “notify” button above message fields, a button that either wasn’t there or I simply never paid attention to before.  If I reply and participate in a thread, that button goes to “unnotify”, implying there’s an automatic feature… apparently it’s not working.

I’ll have to check my personal profile settings to see if there is a long-forgotten all-inclusive notifications option that got inadvertently shut off.

Joel

Addendum:  upon review of profile content, apparently there is no automatic notifications option for posts we aren’t actually participating in, unless we press the “notify” button when reading a thread.

Is anyone else having an issue with the Topic "Notify" feature? The feature that sends an email when a specific topic has been updated. I haven't received any update emails for watched topics since February. I receive other emails from BAC. There is nothing in my junk or spam mail.

Thanks Eric, I saw that video on the crankcase assembly and was hoping that could be the cause. I will pursue changing the assembly and repost results.

Excessive oil from the breather or draft tube is indicative of excessive blow by caused by bad piston rings ( worn out or stuck )
An engine that has seen too much dust or dirt will exhibit excessive blow by this condition is usually caused by an air filter system that allows dirt and dust to pass into the engine ( commonly referred to as dusting an engine ) .check for bad or incorrect or air filter or hole in the air filter hoses leading to the engine intake.

But before getting too carried away the first thing to do is as was stated earlier check your oil level as too much oil can also be the cause of oil dumping at the breather tube. From the little resource I've done it appears the C9. Has an oil capacity of 31.7 quarts not 34 if the engine is over filled the excess oil with be picked up by the crank shaft and flong up into the engine ( a phenomenon known as windage ) this causes oil to atomize and carried to the crankcase breather which is overwhelmed by the amount of extra oil and ends up passing it through the breather instead of scavenging it.

You need to make sure you are running the proper amount of oil.

The other thing you might want to do is service or replace  the crankcase breather assembly as it's job is to allow excess crankcase pressure to vent while at the same time it is scavenging oil from that air it is letting escape if the breather is very dirty its ability to scavenge the transient oil is diminished and oil will pass through it and out the draft tube.

Here is a video of the replacement

Good choice.

Kaiser is a second or third generation operation. They can do repairs that a lot of other shops can't or won't. You'll pay a little more but you'll be in good hands.

And they are honest.

Frank, appreciate the response but this amount of oil is very unusual as I have recalibrate our dip stick 17 years ago and have always added 34 quarts of oil at all oil changes. Also we have driven 1000 miles on the last oil change with no oil coming from the breather tube.Is there any other circumstances that could cause this condition?
